5 weeks- weight gain?

Hello all I just found out I am approximately 5 weeks pregnant. This will be my first child. I was just wondering if any of you experienced mothers could tell me, at what week did you start gaining weight? I don;t know if I should be looking for weight gain within these next couple weeks, or if it wont be until the 2nd trimester. Thanks for your help!

It really depends on you, it is different for everyone. But for me because morning sickness was so bad I didn't gain any weight until about 20 weeks. Even then that was only a few pounds. Before then I just lost weight. Good luck on your pregnancy!

It is very different for everyone, depending on if you are overweight, underweight, or have issues with morning sickness. For me, I was 5'2" and 108 pre-pregnancy, I began to gain weight around 7-8 weeks. I am not 16 weeks and I have gained almost 10 pounds. I have a belly, but it isn't noticeable yet.

Oh, I also want to add that I didn't have any major issues with morning sickness, I had some mild nausea during the day for two weeks, but did not vomit, so I did not lose any weight.
